Claflin University Receives Approval to Launch a Master’s Degree Program in Nursing

Claflin University, the historically Black educational institution in Orangeburg, South Carolina, has received approval for a master’s degree program in nursing. The university launched its bachelor’s degree program in nursing in 2016. Claflin will be the only historically Black college or university in the state of South Carolina to offer a bachelor’s and master’s degree in nursing.

All classes will be offered online except for on-site clinical training that will be required each semester. The program is scheduled to begin during the 2021 fall semester. The target audience for the master’s degree program will be graduates of Claflin’s bachelor’s degree program in nursing and other nursing professionals – throughout the United States and abroad – with a bachelor’s degree in nursing who want to advance their careers.

Dwaun Warmack, president of Claflin University said that “the MSN program represents another historic milestone in the university’s proud history. The success of our master’s and bachelor’s degree nursing programs will position Claflin among the leaders in developing and implementing solutions to the health care needs of residents of Orangeburg, Bamberg, and Calhoun counties and other rural communities.”
